Sally graduated from Memorial University in Newfoundland in 1977 with a Bachelor of Social Work. She then worked for five years in Psychiatry and Family Medicine. In 1985, she graduated from UNB Law and was admitted to the Law Society of New Brunswick in 1987. Sally practised law in a small firm, followed by a ten-year term at The Law Society of New Brunswick where she was the Director of Continuing Legal Education. For the past 22 years she has operated a successful practice as a Workplace Consultant in Atlantic Canada.

Sally teaches Alternative Dispute Resolution at the UNB Law. She is well known for her sense of humour, joie de vivre and her ability to make people laugh while learning. She can be in a hard hat and construction boots one day and be in a boardroom or municipality the next day. Her examples are all real and very practical, and she ties theory and practice together. A very special gift indeed.
